From the balcony of his family’s apartment in Aleppo’s Midan district, Aleppo-Armenian filmmaker Avo Kaprealian began chronicling daily life on the streets, capturing the sense of foreboding rapidly approaching with the violent conflict engulfing the country. Once in a while, the father breaks his silence to reprimand his son for endangering the entire family. In contrast, the mother avails herself of the camera, recounting events and divulging emotion without reserve. Midan’s residents are mainly descendants of survivors of the Armenian genocide, who fled their homes in modern-day Turkey to settle in Aleppo. He draws parallels between the sufferings of the Syrian residents and the Armenian Genocide in a unique way.
